Balogun charged them to be proactive in ensuring members do not engage in sharp practices and defend their interest during any promotion exercise.
They were advised to be up and doing in there places work, to show more commitment.
The ASUSS Chairman also appealed to teachers in the state to be patient while labour unions continue to agitate for payment of their outstanding salaries.
